Keyboard and Biometric Moto Mods Coming in 2018

Keyboard and Biometric Moto Mods Coming in 2018

At CES 2018, Motorola has yet again announced two new Moto Mods.

As we read it as a slider keyboard.

Dozens missing as China eco disaster looms
Navy have deployed ships and aircraft to assist with the search for the missing crewmen amid an area of 900-square nautical miles. The official said the tanker was owned by National Iranian Tanker and had been rented by a South Korean company, Hanwha Total.

The second Moto Mod has been created by Livermorium, a company which won Motorola's Transform the Smartphone Challenge hosted in 2017. Lastly, the Moto TurboPower Pack Mod is priced at Rs 5,999, which has 3500mAh battery and is claimed to offer up to 7 hours of battery life within 15 minutes of charge. One is the Lenovo Vital Moto mod which is for keeping a track of your health and other is the Livermorium Slider keyboard, which as the name suggests is a slider qwerty keyboard for your Moto Z smartphone.

As Livermorium originally promised, the Slider Keyboard mod attaches to the back of your Moto Mod-compatible device, and brings back a full physical keyboard that slides out in landscape mode and tilts the screen up at a 60-degree angle. It also measure your pulse oximetry levels, or how much oxygen is in your blood, and the two common types of blood pressure readings. You have until February 6th to submit your idea, and a select few will receive a Moto Z plus a Moto Mod development kit before working with Indiegogo to get funding for your creation. Strangely enough the victor of the "Transform Challenge" is a Qwerty keyboard. Will you be slapping this mod on your Moto Z phone? In some sense, the keyboard Moto Mod remind me of the yesteryears HTC S710. If you're looking to pick either of these up you'll have a little bit of a wait, as Motorola says that the keyboard mod will be available sometime during this winter for $99, though it doesn't mention when specifically, so it could be later in January or at some point next month.

Libya Rescues 279 Migrants at Sea, but 100 More Are Feared Dead
The coast guard said there was no confirmation of Libyan authorities' statement that at least 25 migrants had died. According to survivors, and a press release by Libya's Coast Guard, about 100 people on board remained missing.

Lenovo-owned Motorola might have been onto something with its modular phone accessories for the Moto Z series, but a combination of slow development of compelling products and poor availability leaves them in a precarious position.
